As we enter 2020, gender diversity on stage at conferences and events is still an issue. Nearly two-thirds of all speakers globally are still men.
Why do we care, aside from the inherent fairness of it all and the fact that events are better when they are diverse and inclusive? We care because women and other underrepresented groups need access to the stage to advance their careers and their businesses. When this happens, world economies grow, and we all benefit.
